5:03 am

5:04 am
they protest what they see is a police state they focused against the persecution of whistleblowers they protest against wall st told the world's biggest producer of genetically modified seeds so generally speaking they see themselves as a movement against the government and corporation is taking advantage of the people . who are. so we're standing next to the white house what do you want president obama to hear you want president obama to hear that five years after the financial crisis the banks being bailed out we're still suffering people are still struggling they're drowning in debt we live in a country that's fundamentally unfair we no longer have the rule of law from the n.s.a. to edward snowden to chelsea manning all over the world people are speaking out whistleblowers are speaking out regular people are speaking out and saying enough is enough we want justice we want to know and people ask if a decentralized mass movements like this can achieve anything other than just making noise well last year they were instrumental in informing people about this
5:05 am
but legislation that would provide legal protection to internet giants that spawn all private information of their users two thousand agents use and now in light of edward snowden's revelations they demand a drastic overhaul of the n.s.a. all the movements rolled out in almost every continent france italy and portugal were among the e.u. countries which saw the protests elsewhere canada mexico and brazil demonstrations also drew crowds in japan australia and new zealand all of the face of god guide dogs more popular than ever abby martin looks as its significance. for you hard pressed to not find this mascot a recent protest but ironically every time the mask is purchased time warner gets a cut just because of time turners move even for an end to come. bunny also trademark the mask but despite this disturbing contradiction the mask still serves
5:06 am
a very noble purpose it's helped to give activists unity and identity to anonymity . now as a privacy campaigners to their ground and other ad words snowden leak emerged it turns out that it's not just the u.s. that might have been brian into germany's classified affairs lawrence miss is in london for the. lord so tell us who's been caught out now. well now we know of course that it wasn't just the u.s. who was eavesdropping on the germans it's really been revealed that britain probably was to this information comes from the edward snowden leaks from n.s.a. documents from aerial photographs and of course from past form and it suggests that the u.k. has its own nest of intercepting equipment on the roof of its own embassy
5:07 am
high-tech listing equipment on the roof of the embassy which of course is in the heart of a not very far from the german parliament not at all far from calls office so really in the heart intercepting communications potentially in the heart of german government. and this equipment intercept mobile phone calls and it's well known that angela merkel conducts a lot of government business through mobile phone calls and also through text messages can also incept wife by data and long just longer distance communications right across the german capital so it's incredibly intrusive potentially the germans of course are up in arms about it one m.e.p. has said that the operation is clearly targeting politicians and journalists and questioning whether they really are enemies of britain if you like and he says it's hardly in the spirit of european cooperation that everyone's going on about all the time and of course it's incredibly awkward for the british red faces all around the
5:08 am
british ambassador has been summoned to see the german foreign minister to try to explain himself. well of course this isn't the first time that a close friend of germany has been up to no good ripe. yeah that's right we already knew about about the u.s. . listening equipment and it's basically the same deal equipment on the roof of the embassy which if you see pictures of it it's pretty obvious that it's there it's a sort of white box but apparently it's not visible from the streets at school and it's real spy novel stuff all of the operations for stuff by people inside the embassy but very few start and working under covers that even their colleagues didn't know what they were doing and the u.s. is now scrambled to limit that damage by shutting down this intercepting nest we know that from. we know that. the nest has been significantly reduced but of course that's happened as these new allegations about the u.k.
5:09 am
have been and german and u.s. diplomatic relations have really hit an extraordinary relations of really has been extraordinary since this since this was revealed and we can expect the same for the u.k. if the ambassador isn't able to provide now as a percentage of the nation and the first test of those relations particularly between the u.s. and germany is coming up next week that's basically trade negotiations between the u.s. and the european union understandably those in now in jeopardy and the european official talking to the guardian newspaper said it's over for us now the u.s. and germany particularly got close to be the e.u. as a whole haven't been doing business on a level playing field so potentially incredibly damaging well indeed must be very embarrassing situation for the countries cagr and hannah doing that and certainly nominees a backdrop for the negotiations between the parties involved laura smith thank you so much for bringing us this update from wanda and from germany's pirate party doesn't think his country's an entirely innocent victim. the german government of
5:10 am
course didn't notice what was happening on the roof top of the u.s. embassy and the u.k. embassy because it's clear for everybody who looks at that building what's going on there but i think that the german interior secret service they're not a nod to investigate on the l a's and this is simply because germany right now is such a class part of the b. of the u.s. and they want to become a first class partner so our government is simply selling our privacy and their own privacy to climb up to lead. the us out has its own vision on resolving spy scowls once and for all by plugging leaks with dollars lawmakers have approved the annual intelligence authorization act that includes funding operations to prevent revelations similar to those made by edward snowden the director abhi n.s.a. will also have more powers to investigate employees with security clearances.
5:11 am

5:12 am
of all the countries involved so it's great that we can tie these two great events in an elim pics in the international space station tie them together in some small way and we're happy to be a small part of it. the olympic flame is one of the most ancient symbols of peace and it's a great responsibility and a great pleasure to be working with this symbol. taking the specially modified torch because of course you can't have a naked flame in the vacuum of space out of the s.s. on the night of november and the scheduled to come back here down to earth on the eleventh of november lots of press here from all around the world the friends of excitement here in the baikonur of course there's lots of military the heightened security is in full places going to be almost children military here of course this is now part of the exciting pan russian school for the olympic torch it's already been to the north pole where it was on nuclear powered ice breaking ship it will make its way to lake baikal the largest freshwater lake in the world go to the very
5:13 am
very bottom of that lake and it will also make its way to the tallest mountain in europe to the peak of elbrus before its final journey to the olympic opening ceremony on the seventh of february next year in sochi on the black sea so lots to look forward to but of course at the moment for the next twenty four hours all the eyes on the olympic flame and the torch is journey to morrow to the i assess to look forward to in a moment that's promised to be literally out of this world well we're of course following the torch on its average journey around russia and beyond anything to keep tabs on it. the new ones taking russia to court for detaining greenpeace activist in the arctic ocean in september theory environmentalists where arrested after trying to scale a russian oil rig and the dutch are demanding their release reports. russia is not

activists possibly being transferred to a different jail from mormons which is in the north of petersburg however there is no official confirmation in that regard norris's has said that they would drop the charges of piracy and replace them with charges the polygamous and very recently however that has not been done yet. so there's a bitter pill for some doctors in the united states a report reveals that some help torture prisoners instead of giving them treatment the details on that still have for you the south. now britain's construction industry is building at its fastest rate since the credit crisis hit problem and the skilled workers have gone we'll look at why.
